Lazada Product Title Quality Challenge Overview

On Lazada, we have millions of products across thousands of categories. To stand out from the crowd, sellers employ creative, sometimes disruptive efforts to improve their search relevancy or attract the attention of customers. Product titles like “hot sexy red clutch rug sack travel backpack unisex cheap with free gift” degenerate user experience by cluttering the site with irrelevant, misleading titles.

In this challenge, we provide you with a set of product titles, description, and attributes, together with the associated title quality scores (clarity and conciseness) as labeled by our internal QC team. Your task is to build a product title quality model that can automatically grade the clarity and the conciseness of a product title.

Let’s work together to free Lazada from poor quality titles and return us to a state of clean and relevant product titles.
